Just in case you feel a little bit confused by the title that concerns what seems to be two different devices, fret not – they are basically one and the same, where the Acer DA241HL, also known as the Gateway N1-2400, has already arrived at the FCC, which points to the very real possibility of said all-in-one desktop is well on its way to the US. Chances are should it arrive Stateside, it would most probably be sold under the Acer brand name, while the Gateway name would be used in markets where perception of said brand ranks higher than Acer. After all, Gateway does belong to Acer after the Taiwanese company picked it up in 2007 for approximately $710 million.
What looks like an ordinary desktop computer monitor takes on a different form factor when you look at it from a different angle – speakers are located under the display, while audio, USB and SD card ports happen to be located around the sides. Underneath the hood lies a processor, storage, and all the essentials required to run Google’s Android mobile operating system. So far, leaked benchmark results point to a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on board, but that has yet to be finalized. Needless to say, pricing details are also unknown, and this is not the first time a device comes with either the possibility of an Acer or Gateway branding, which would be market dependent.
